Abstract

Nanjido was a small island where orchids and gromwell grew along with various seasonal flowers. However, in March 1978, Nanjido was changed into a garbage dumping site for the city of Seoul, the capital of Korea. Korea did not employ any modern landfill techniques to treat the gas and leachate generated by landfills during the 1970s. The dump site was used for 15 years without even covering the garbage with soil. Finally, after the trash had built up into two 100m-high garbage heaps, its use as a waste dumping site was discontinued in March 1993. In the meanwhile, the surrounding area became home to the socially vulnerable people living next to the dump. Korea’s first waste management regulation was the Waste Cleaning Act in 1961; the Environmental Preservation Act for industrial waste was enacted in 1977. (The rest omitted)
